Infopeople Webinars



"Veterans Connect @ the Library"

Date & Time: July 16th, 2014 12:00 PM. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM.

 

Presenters: Jacquie Brinkley, Karen Bosch Cobb, John “Buzz” Kraft

 

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is California-centric, although others may find it valuable.

* Are veterans (anyone who served in one of the 5 branches of the military) asking you questions you cannot answer? Worse yet, are they not asking you anything because they do not know about the service/benefits to which they are entitled?

* Do you know why should libraries serve veterans when there are other agencies that already do so?

* How can a public library establish services for veterans in a simple step by step way?

The California State Library has a statewide grant which is setting up Veterans Resource Centers in public libraries. The goals are to provide veteran benefits and local service information to veterans and family members and links to other organizations serving veterans, to increase veteran benefit claims and to increase the number of veterans registered with CalVet so that they stay informed about veterans. The grant program will expand in FY 14/15, and this webinar will explain how libraries can become involved in the grant and/or set up services for veterans on their own.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

* Understand why it is important for libraries to serve veterans and their families

* Know the top 4 needs of veterans

* Know where to find “library service” in a box for California Public Libraries and understand the 6 steps to providing services to veterans in a library.

* Understand how to get funding to setup a Veterans Resource Center Library or how to set one up on your own

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff who plan services and desk staff who work with veterans or intend to work with veterans.

"Makerspaces in Libraries: Legal Considerations"

Presenter: Mary Minow

 

Description: Your community is supercharged about the new makerspace planned for your library. All systems are full speed ahead, and the staff is ready. But wait. Have you considered all the issues? For instance,

* Do you know about the liability issues inherent in makerspace programs?

* What can your library do to protect itself from liability?

* What elements should be in user waivers and in partnership agreements?

* Can the library protect itself from intellectual property liability when patrons use library equipment to create and copy all types of works using library tools and equipment such as 3D printers?

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will understand ways to:

* Minimize liability through waivers and insurance

* Point users to intellectual property resources to minimize their risks

* Register the library with U.S. Copyright Office to minimize its exposure to copyright liability from user generated content

* Frame a partnership agreement with an outside provider

This webinar will be of interest to library program planners, Administration, and those interested in makerspace activities.

WebJunction Webinars

 

"Making Your Space: Creators and Makers in the Library"

Date & Time: 09 July 2014. 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

 

Presenters: Mara Siegel, Continuing Education Coordinator, Vermont Department of Libraries; and Samantha Maskell, Youth Services Librarian, Rockingham Free Public Library, Bellows Falls, VT

 

Description: There’s a transformation going on in libraries—a shift in emphasis from consuming information to convening and creating. Makerspaces in libraries are a big part of this conversation, where the learning and camaraderie are just as significant as tools like 3D printers. If the idea of a makerspace conjures up the hurdles for you (limited space, limited resources, or limited confidence in your own tech skills), this webinar will help you learn how to get started and grow a space in your library for creating. Together, we will debunk the hype, learn how to define your library’s scope and audience, get your board on board, and find creative partners in your community.

"Libraries as Drivers of Community Development: Global Edition"

Date & Time: 16 July 2014. 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

 

Presenters: William Cartwright, President and CEO, Riecken Community Libraries; and Ugne Lipeikaite, Impact Coordinator, EIFL-PLIP (Public Library Innovation Programme)

 

Description: Around the world, libraries are at the heart of community transformation. Instead of aiming to be responsive to emerging needs, libraries can actively push their communities to develop and thrive. Hear stories from around the globe about libraries that are a force to be reckoned with. Join us for this webinar that shares examples of libraries at the leading edge of positive change in communities in Honduras, Guatemala, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Learn about and bring home successful, practical grassroots approaches to library-driven community development.  The organizations and libraries featured are grantees of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or are beneficiaries of a foundation-supported program. Darren Hoerner, Program Officer at the Gates Foundation, will introduce the session. Guided by the belief that all lives have equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people live healthy, productive lives.

Carterette Series Webinar

(Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service)

 

"Net Neutrality: Recent Changes in Legislation"

Date & Time: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 1:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00).

 

Presenter: Emily Almond, she has been a librarian in the Atlanta area for 17 years. Her specialties include library systems, open-source software development, strategy development, web usability and broadband networks for libraries. She has been a librarian at CNN, Emory University, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and she is currently the Director of IT for the Georgia Public Library Service.

 

Description: "There is one Internet. It must be fast, robust and it must be open. The prospect of a gate keeper choosing winners and losers on the Internet is unacceptable...." – FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler

The above quote addresses what, until now, has been a given - that with an Internet connection, anyone has access to all information available via an Internet Service Provider. That changed in January 2014 when a major court decision stripped the FCC of its power to enforce network neutrality protections, providing an opening for telecom companies to begin exploiting technologies by monitoring and controlling data sent via their networks.

In this webinar co-coordinated with the GLA Governmental Relations Committee, Emily Almond, Director of Information Technology for the Georgia Public Library Service, will explore the implications of the current state of net neutrality, including taking a look at the following questions:

- Should libraries be concerned and why?


- What actions are recommended by ALA and other libraries?


- How do librarians take action on issues like this? What is appropriate?


- Is there anything specific to Georgia that we should be concerned about?

No one knows if these changes are a cause for alarm or if we're just being alarmist, but it can't hurt to stay informed and to be on the lookout for changes to come. This is intended to be a discussion, not a lecture, so bring your expertise and questions!
